Image of peculiar 'long neck' avocado goes viral

An image of a strange-looking avocado recently posted on Facebook by a U.S. company has gone viral. It has stunned social media commenters with its peculiar shape and size.

Florida-based fruit supplier Miami Fruit last week posted the photo of the fruit.

In its Facebook post, the company said: "The avocados are popping off right now!"

"South Florida farmers grow dozens of unique varieties not common in any other part of the mainland USA."

The image of the fruit, reportedly of the Pura Vida avocado variety, has generated thousands of likes, comments, and shares.

"That looks like a house deposit right there!" said one user, referring to controversial comments made by a millionaire two years ago that young people cannot afford to buy houses because they're wasting their money on avocado toast.

Meanwhile, Australia Organic referred to the fruit as a "long neck avocado" and "100 percent organic and GMO-free". Its post alone has received more than 10,000 comments and 8,000 shares.
